You never know when your computer could eat up all your work, but you can backup your important files on the music player you already own!
Launch iTunes and click the iPod icon listed under Devices in the source pane.
Connect the iPod to the computer using the sync cable as you normally would.
Click on the Summary tab, and check the box next to "Enable disk use.”
Open My Computer—or the Finder, if you’re using a Macintosh—and you should now see the iPod listed under removable storage.
Double click to open the iPod folder and simply drag over any file you would like to copy.
Never delete or alter any of the files or folders already listed on the iPod, which allow your iPod to function properly.
Properly eject the iPod from the computer by using iTunes. Click the small eject triangle beside the iPod icon in the source pane.
Disconnect your iPod. Your files are now safe from any computer mutiny!
